March 7, 2012 - PRLog -- Atlanta, G.A. – Just off a recent trip to the HandsOn Network/Points of Light headquarters, Verneda White, Founder & Creative Director of apparel by HUMAN INTONATION (, had the opportunity to meet with the brand’s original non-profit partner and learn of her nomination for the Daily Points of Light Award. In the pioneering days of Human Intonation, and the inception of its line of social conscious t-shirts used to raise funds post Hurricane Katrina, White first reached out to HandsOn Network to make the connection with HandsOn New Orleans, now the brand’s longest running non-profit partner.

White was nominated by Jennifer Nash, Sr. Manager, Affiliate Corporate Engagement HandsOn Network, and the award recognizes individuals and volunteer groups that have made a commitment to connect Americans through service to help meet critical needs in their communities. As a longtime supporter of HandsOn, White’s nomination comes in the wake of a six year commitment to HandsOn New Orleans, the continuation of the brand’s “Katrina Collection” where 20% of each sale is donated to the organization, and the completion of two volunteer trips to the Gulf Coast.

History of the Daily Point of Light Award: The Daily Point of Light Award was established by former President George H. W. Bush to engage individuals, families, businesses and groups to solve community problems through voluntary service. During his presidency, President Bush distributed 1,020 Daily Point of Light Awards, placing volunteer service at the top of his agenda. President Bush continues to sign all of the awards today (

Continued success will allow Human Intonation to use fashion as a medium to bring light to social & human rights issues that do not receive constant coverage in the media. Today, the brand is also connected with other non-profits including the Darfur Peace & Development Org, Advocates for Youth, and Yéle Haiti.
